Gause Landing
Early Hist
Although it has never received
much notice of its historical
antecedents, Gause Landing, on
the coast some eight or ten
miles below Shallotte, was memorable
in past days.
When Old Town on the Cape
Fear River above Southport
was just becoming a settlement,
the forefathers of Charles
I E. Gause of Southport and of
John D. Bellamy of Wilmington
left England. They first
went to the Barbedoes and then
came on to the Cape Fear coun- I
Because of the prevalence of
yellow fever at Old Town,
brought there in ships from
Nassau, the Gauses and Bellamys
soon left Old Town and
went down the coast some 40
miles to the place that became
known as Gause Landing.
There they settled and around
them grew a thriving com'
Of the things that existed I

the old Gause cemetery with C
its vault built of brick that | f(
were brought from England. I jj
This vault is a counterpart of
the famous "King" Roger w
Moore vault at Orton. ei
The diary of President George
Washington shows that he vis- w
ited Gause Landing and was a a
guest of the great-great-great ^
grandfather of Chas. E. Gause
of Southport. This pre-revolu- tl
tionary war Gause is under- a
stood to be sleeping with sev- a
eral other bodies in the Gause C
vault, or tomb, at the landing. w
Some eight or ten other
graves surround the tomb. As
tombstones were then unknown E
and as there are no rocks in a
lower Brunswick, history says
that a small cedar tree was fl
planted as a marker at the 11
head of each grave. Some of a
these trees still remain.
"King" Roger Moore is cerdited
with having settled at
Orton, attracted by the natural

be supposed to have inspired n

founding of Gause Landing. R

It is bad enough to have the

but carry along your expensive
fishing tackle with them, then
you have a just complaint.
That's what happened to
Captain II. T. Bowmer Sunday
when he and a party of Kanapolis
sportsmen ran into a
school of king mackerel. They
were successful in landing but
two of the fish, each weighing
between 15-pounds and 20-lbs.
Several others were brought
along side the boat in plain
view, but broke away, carrying
off practically all of Captain
Bowmer's trolling lures.

As a result Mrs. Smith is is

The General Assembly of 193

in plentiful quantities, it is very
probably that the production
and exports during a single
week often run to double that
of last week.
Another cold spell will apparently
have to strike before
the mullett runs really set in.
At the same time, if weather
conditions permit, the taking of
shrimp will really begin. With
all the preparations now in effect,
there should be a week
or two between now and the
last of November when the seafood
shipments from along the
coast of Brunswick will grow to
staggering proportions.
When one takes into account
the highly concentrated nature
of seafoods, especially in the
case of shrimp, even last weeks
